Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,” 6 so that we confidently say, “The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. What will man do to me?” (Hebrews 13:5-6 NAS)
We know the story of Jonah. God could have wrecked the boat Jonah was on, let Jonah drown in the sea, or let the fish consume Jonah. But He didn’t. He gave Jonah the opportunity to repent. Are we thankful God also does the same for us when we are disobedient?
but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong, (1 Corinthians 1:27 NAS)
